Reviews

There are few other writers who could invoke such a lasting memory of a single image with so few words.
A literary habitat like no other--quietly devastating fiction. Behind a lyrical and understated surface, chaotic passions pulse.
Yasunari Kawabata's lusciously peculiar novel Dandelions was unfinished when he took his life in 1972. It's a story of love and loss and mania, told in sparse, arresting prose.-- (06/09/2017)
Kawabata's novels are among the most affecting and original works of our time.--The New York Times Book Review
